At Great American Bash night two, Adam Cole dropped the NXT Championship in a Winner Takes All match with North American Champion Keith Lee.
The match was pretty darn good, and has since been kept ****1/4 rating in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter by Dave Meltzer.
Prior to dropping the title to Lee, Cole has been champion for a staggering 403 days. He won the belt back at NXT TakeOver: XXV in a great match with Johnny Gargano.
Following on from this long-reign, many people have speculated that Cole won’t be staying in NXT for too much longer, with his future likely on the main roster.
Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda is reporting that there is an offer, as of right now, to bring Adam Cole and the rest of Undisputed Era up to the main roster following Cole’s title loss.
However, Colohue goes on to report that not every member of the faction wants to move to either Raw or SmackDown in the coming months:
“I can exclusively report that while there is an offer on the table to bring Adam Cole and The Undisputed Era up to RAW or SmackDown around SummerSlam time, not every member of the group is eager to have that happen due to an urge to stay in NXT. There is believed to be a concern that the move from Full Sail to the Performance Center taping schedule might create an increased risk of COVID-19.”
Colohue then goes on to add that as a result of this, some of the faction may be left behind in NXT, while others are brought up to either Monday Night Raw or Friday Night SmackDown:
“While the desire is to move the entire faction up as a whole entity instead of just Adam Cole, a number of officials have expressed a concern to me that there is still some convincing to do. It is, unfortunately, possible that one or more members would be “left behind” in a sense and stay in NXT despite being assured that there are little to no plans to use them going forwards.”
